Delicious Poor Man's Steak

The waitress mentioned that the chef is from Peru. The flavored are excellent & most entrees are not too spicy. The two top entrees are 1) "Poor Man's Steak" - New York Steak, taxi tacu, plantains, chimichuri, etc.; and 2) "Seafood Paella" which has prawns, scallops, clams, mussels, squid, fish... read more

We had dinner here with our 2 boys. The menu was limited and the food choices appeared to be Cuban for the most part. Our waitress was wonderful and the ambience very nice. The food was prepared well. They did not have a childrens menu, and there was very little that children would like. They did what they could to... More

Since we were spending the night at the Inn at Oyster Point before an early morning flight, we decided (as we've done before) to enjoy the lovely view of SF Bay while we had dinner downstairs at the restaurant located inside the hotel. It's so convenient to enjoy a drink and meal without having to get out in the car... More

We ate here because we were staying in the hotel and the menu looked promising. Good--salad and chowder. Fair--Lamb, fish combo entree. The lamb was hard to eat off the bone, was a little gamey. The fish was unimaginative. Poor---Service. One waiter was crackerjack but the other couldn't complete any tasks without assistance. It is a small restaurant/bar combo and... More

Out of the way place, unless you're going to the harbor, you're not going to happen to pass by it, especially since it's tucked inside of the Inn at Oyster Point. Been going here for over 15 years, before it was called Dominic's. For an appetizer, we usually go with the calamari fritti, good sized portion for the price. Go... More

Was here for the Mother's Day brunch. The foyer was quaint and the view gorgeous. Waited ten minutes for a hostess and then waited another 15 min for our reserved table. The selection on the menu sounded wonderful. The place was packed, service staff was overwhelmed. Was told several times that our mimosas would be brought to us... That was... More

This restaurant is located in a waterfront hotel. The dining room is fairly small and the vibe is kinda sterile, it has a definite manufactured home feel. Service was OK. The food was uninspired but edible. Awesome view! If only the ambiance and food matched the view.

Ok, so this is an interesting place. It's a restaurant in an "Inn" right on the water. The restaurant is squeezed into the same small area as the bar, with a mixture of high tops and seated tables. The view is nice, overlooking the harbor and water. My food was all above average: from the salad to the seafood entree.... More
